What games are available to play on Valve’s Steam Deck?

Valve has checked the compatibility of hundreds of Steam games on the Steam Deck. Here’s the complete list.

Valve’s highly anticipated Steam Deck is finally set to arrive later this month. The handheld console is more like a portable gaming PC, with access to Steam’s massive library of PC games. But not every game on Steam is optimized for the mobile console.

Since the Steam Deck’s announcement in July of last year, there has been speculation on which games will be compatible with the device. The company has been working with game developers to verify which games in Steam’s massive library will be compatible with the Steam Deck.

The company’s compatibility program places Steam titles into one of three different categories. Verified games have a green checkmark on the Steam Deck and will work without a hitch.

A yellow exclamation mark means games are playable but may require some manual tweaking. And a gray icon means the games aren’t playable at all. So let’s see which Valve Steam Deck games have made the cut so far.

First, we’ll take a look at the games that Steam has verified on the Steam Deck so far. There are tens of thousands of games available on Steam. So it’ll likely be a while before all of them are checked for compatibility. Still, the list is pretty strong, with more than 300 games already verified. Check them out below:

This list is subject to change

Valve’s Steam Deck hasn’t even come out yet, but the company has already verified compatibility for hundreds of games. This list will likely grow exponentially over the next few weeks as the Steam Deck bursts onto the market.

We will try to keep this list as updated as possible so feel free to circle back for any updates. If you want to check out the compatibility of Steam games on the Steam Deck for yourself, you can use this handy tool from SteamDB.

The SteamDB search tool lets you sort games by their compatibility on different operating systems. Under the Platforms filter section, you can check Steam Deck Verified, Playable, or Unsupported. Then, you can search for any Steam Game and find out its compatibility with the Steam Deck.

Hopefully, this list helps you discover which games you will be able to play on your Steam Deck. If you don’t find the game you’re looking for, don’t worry.

Just because a game has not been verified yet, doesn’t mean that it absolutely won’t work on the device. You’ll just have to try it yourself or wait until Steam gets a chance to check your game’s compatibility.
